the opposite of the way they've negotiated inside with john boehner and others on past deals. >> yeah, the president feels he has very strong cards here and one of the strategies of the white house is that if we go over the cliff, if all those tax cuts are allowed to expire, the president has real ways to extract pain from the republicans. polls already show people are more likely to blame republicans and here's something very important. republican leaders know that. joe scarborough writes on politico right now that when eric cantor, the number two house republican was there on your set, that he noticed a different tone from him and seeing more and more signs of that as the week goes along, the republican leaders recognize that the president has an inaugural address, a state of the union address and a lot of high-profile ways to pin the blame on them and so today we have this remarkable movement position by tom cole, one of the most politically savvy republicans who told their whip team that they would be better off to cave, that they would be better off to give what he calls the earl
the leaders of the senate, harry reid and mitch mcconnell. i want to congratulate speaker john boehner, who has done a phenomenal job of ensuring that we would continue business as usual. i want to congratulate minority leader posey forever that she has put in, getting us to the point we are today. i urge my colleagues to support this measure. with that, i yield back the balance of my time. >> the chair now recognizes members from the committee on ways and means, chairman mr. camp from michigan and ranking minority member mr. levin from michigan. the gentleman from michigan. >> i yield myself such time as i may consume. >> it is recognized. >> if the congress does not act and act now, america will default. that would wreak havoc on our economy and make it harder for americans to find and keep a job. edfault cannot be an option. i am pleased that the bill before us ensures that will not occur. just as it would threaten economic health, so would increase in taxes. raising taxes on families and job creators would hinder investment, increase the cost of doing business, and result in even less h
sent a letter of resignation to house speaker john boehner while his chief of staff delivered copies in illinois. >> can you tell us how he's doing? >> he's doing good. >> jackson wrote, my health issues and treatment regimen have become incompatible in the house of representatives. but his deteriorated health is not the only factor. in his letter he does admit to mistakes. jackson has been in talks with federal prosecutors who are looking into whether he misused campaign funds to buy personal things, including an expensive watch. i am doing my best to address the situation responsibly, cooperate with the investigators, and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alobe. alone. wednesday, jackson's father called the resignation painful. >> it's a moment for our family and we'll face the day tomorrow with prayer and we find support in so many people. >> jackson's lawyers say he is cooperating, but it could take months to resolve his legal issues. illinois officials are looking at options for when to hold a special election to fill the vacant seat. and i
's stupid. >> john boehner said no rates are going up two weeks ago. >> so the other one is total gridlock, which looks possible at this point. >> then you get a fiscal cliff scenario. that's when those cuts actually kick in and there is no other way to say it. it will be pretty bad. you'll get tax increases and budget cuts. some fiscal conservatives would say that's the economy, which is only growing at 2%, would take such a jolt. i think the markets could do down below 10,000. >> your third scenario would be a grand bargain. what would that look like and would this be good for obama's legacy? >> it would be great for his legacy. he believes his legacy is about fairness. one of the things he has run on, follow him economically, i'm very concerned about it, is this notion of tax fairness. that the rich have gotten richness while the poor have gotten poorer. there are statistics that back that up. but he doesn't really take into account the economic impact of raising those upper rates. it's more than upper rates that he wants to raise, it's taxes on dividends, capital gains to pay for obam
some other republicans. >> this is quite the tight rope for a lot of republicans. even john boehner was reticent in saying, okay, i'm ready to raise taxes. he still is talking about maybe the health care reform act taking some sort of hit. but then therein lies the question that so many americans, they want to see a compromise. what is it going to take? what is going to be the area where either side is willing to compromise? >> well, i think republicans are going to want to see some real spending cuts. the situation has changed. we are in an untenable situation, spending so much more than we're taking in. right now, when you look at president obama's proposed spending cuts, a lot of them are leisure. they're cuts in there, for example, that are already agreed upon. in other words, we already have. so you can't really count those. there are other things he called spending cuts which are for wars we're not going to fight. he's going to save a trillion dollars not fighting wars that we're not going to fight anyway. so that's like me saying i'm going to give you a trillion dollars, no,
. plus protesters showed up naked, look at that. that's house speaker john boehner's office. they were demanding on a serious front demanding funding to fight aids. >> oh, my goodness. >> seven of them will be joining us, fully clothed i'm hoping, to talk about what sparked their protest, what they're hoping to gain, plus she sold 100 million records in a decade. a career that spanned five decades, dionne warwick is our guest. going to talk about her new album, my father is in love with dionne warwick so he'll be all excited about that. much more coming up this morning on "starting point." >> did you invite your father in? >> he can watch it on tv. of course. >> we'll be getting up -- >> oh, my gosh, soledad. thanks. >> you bet. >> black ice and snow causing some trouble after yesterday's storm in the northeast. now, new storm's rolling into the northwest this morning. alexandra steele with the extreme weather center where -- putting the extreme in extreme weather. >> it looked pretty yesterday for a minute. >> oh, i bet. six inches in portions of new jersey. so we've got two things ha
? and so if right now the question is how do you do that? well, john boehner went to the white house ten days ago and said, hey, republicans in the house are willing to 0 put revenues on the table. that was a big move, right? and we said we are going to do that in the name of trying to fix the problem to respond to the electorate that re-elected this president, but at the same time we say we weren't elected to raise taxes. we want to help people get back it to work. >> so is it safe to say there might be a scenario in which that pledge would not apply or would be put to the side for compromise? >> you know, mika, i haven't talked to grover norquist so i don't know what he wants to do with his pledge. what i know is the constituents that i represent and i believe most american people want to see, number one, more jobs created. and let me tell you a story that i think is relevant to this question. i was in montana during the campaign and i met a gentleman who had taken a job as a cook at an airport restaurant. and he told me, please fix this problem because i want to get back to my profess
and frankly for house speaker john boehner. he may want to cut a deal but may not have the votes because these guys might be on a primary suicide mission, some of these house republicans, if they side with raising tax rates. if they raise taxes they will lose the primary and there's no general election, they don't have to where he about voters. >> are democrats signaling where they may be willing to compromise? >> reporter: president has been willing to talk about social security and medicare and put entitlements on the table. the problem the president has is many parts of his base, including some of those house democrats that he might need in some sort of forged compromise, they are not crazy about doing that. we won. the mandate is to raise taxes. there was no mandate from the voters to tinker with social security and tinker with medicare, but at some point the president's going to put that on the table, and the question will his base let him do it? >> let me switch gears a bit. i want to ask you about senator john mccain. he, of course, has been very critical about the potential nomin
and john boehner to bring their wings of the parties back in for any sort of a deal. because it seems like both sides are getting their back up at this point. >> well, i don't think it's making it more difficult, becky. i think what happens is at the beginning of a negotiation, everybody is sort of staking out their positions and their demands. you know, the demand by democrats, for example, that social security and medicare not be part of this discussion, that's not a sustainable demand. everybody knows that entitlement programs, the president has said so, have to be part of this. now, exactly what proportion and when they're part of it, those are things that you can talk about, but, no, they are part of this deal. so are tax increases, and, you know, republicans taking out the position that, well, we can't touch tax rates, we can touch tax loopholes, everybody's got to wait and see how the math adds up. this is an extremely complicated and difficult thing. >> i don't think -- i don't think it's well done to be negotiating in public like this because it only makes it more difficult. i wis
